Alosa fallax Histological data showed that the ovary of twaite shad exhibited group-synchronous development Group-synchronous Lopez, 2007
Alosa fallax The development of oocytes in twaite shad is asynchronous because these fish are capable of bringing oocytes from an immature conditions through vitellogenesis during the spawning season. Eggs are recruited from a heterogeneous population of developing oocytes and are subsequently ovulated in several batches during each spawning season. Asynchronous Pina, 2003

Abramis brama Group-synchronous Group-synchronous Rinchard, 1996
Abramis brama In females with batch spawning asynchronous growth and maturation of the oocytes is noticeable early in ovary development and most frequently during ovaries stage IV. In various A. brama populations, 0.0 to 80.4 % of the females were characterized by asynchronous development of trophoplasmatic growth oocytes. Thefirst oocytes batch is larger, their diameter is 0.8-1.3 mm. The second batch (after 14 to 30 days) is smaller and oocyte diameter is 0.4-0.8 mm. The ratio of oocytenumbers in the second batch to their number in the first batch, ranges from 19.6 to 40.8%. In stunded A.brama from Lake Jaskhan (Turkmenia)three oocyte populations were observed in an ovary but because high water temperatures reaching 30-33°C and food deficiency these oocytes were resorbed. In the Aral Sea, a subspecies Abramis brama orientalis was, according to many authors, charactetised by an asynchronous oocyte development and batch feucndity, but changes in the environment of the Aral Sea have induced single batch spawning. The sub-species of A. brama, introduced into Siberian waters, maintained single -batch spawning. The proportion of females with batch spawning increases in A. brama population southwards in the range in comparison with centrally located waters. Northern A. brama spawn in one portion only Asynchronous Brylinska and Boron, 2004

Cyprinus carpio Carp ovary development is asynchronous Asynchronous Dubost, 1997
Cyprinus carpio Common carp are asynchronous, multiple batch spawners with indeterminate breeding season fecunidty. At the individual level, oocytes at all developmental stages occured in some ovaries, but discrete batches of oocytes typically matured in synchrony. Not all eggs from the same batch were necessarily spawned at once, and it is likely that some fish spawned again within weeks (one individual retained a portion of mature oocytes in the anterior of each ovary after spawning).

Gasterosteus aculeatus Simultaneous development of batches of eggs Synchronous Borg and Van Veen, 1982
Gasterosteus aculeatus The evidence suggests that a population of oocytes is recuited from pre-vitellogenic oocyes and strats to accumulate yolk shortly before or at the same time as the ovultation of a batch of eggs that have completed their maturation. After the spawning, these vitellogenic oocyes continue to accumulate yolk over the first days of the inter-spawning interval, then undergo maturation over the last hours before ovulation and spawning No category Ali and Wooton, 1999
